Thermostat manufacturer partners with BC Hydro on rebate program
Sinopé Technologies, a Canadian thermostat manufacturing company, is working in partnership with BC Hydro to offer deals on smart thermostats.
Starting Oct. 15 and until November 12, BC Hydro will reimburse customers $40 for the cost of each smart thermostat eligible through its energy consumption reduction program. Sinopé Technologies will add an additional 15 per cent rebate.
“Some smart thermostats for electric heating will come as low as $40 each. It is literally unheard of in history. Especially since these thermostats can reduce the consumers’ energy bills by 25 per cent,” says Maxime Caron-Labonté, Chief Commercial Officer at Sinopé Technologies.
According to BC Hydro, space heating can account for up to 50 per cent of your home’s overall electricity use. With a smart thermostat, users can find comfort in their home without having to manually adjust the temperature, plus it saves electricity.
A regular home using baseboard heaters requires on average 8 to 10 electric heating thermostats. Changing those all at once can be a real financial challenge for a household. The rebate program put in place by BC Hydro, in addition to Sinopé Technologies’ rebate offer, is an opportunity to benefit from the advantages of smart devices and lower electricity bills.
